Romantic Weekend in NYC - How am I doing?

JonnyB74 | Apr 25, 2013 10:45 PM

My wife and I (early/mid 30's) are planning a romantic long weekend in NYC around Memorial Day - May 23 to 26. We've both been to New York many times. We enjoy fine dining, though I'd say we are far from being "foodies". We love a great room, fun atmosphere and amazing food and are not afraid to pay for the pleasure now and then.
I've put together a food itinerary and I would love to know everyone's thoughts on what if anything I should change.
Also, I'd love to know if anyone has recommendations on bars/lounges that we can mix in to this itinerary that are particularly fun. We're staying at the Standard in the Meat Packing District.

I've got reservations at all of the below.

Thursday - Arrive late afternoon.

Dinner - Buddakan (This is the weakest food option I know. But it has sentimental value for us.)


Dinner - Jean Georges


Brunch - Stanton Social
Dinner - 15 East (we love sushi!)


Lunch - Per Se

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
